We loved this lovely dish. The turnips were light and so creamy. It was so easy to put together and was a lovely addition to our supper. I have added this recipe to my tried & true cookbook. Thanks for sharing it.

I've never eaten a turnip before. This recipe with simple, on-hand ingredients was so easy to prepare. I used half and half instead of cream, but the results were fabulous!

Loved it! I had to use 1 percent milk and it still turned out great! Thanks for the keeper Chia!
